What a moving tribute Bunny. Initially all the football memories may hurt as you mourn your loss but in time they will become a massive tonic. When my Mum passed away there where places I associate with her that really upset me, but in time they gave me so much comfort.
Ant Our thoughts with you all especially you Phil and Sheila Truly touching tribute to your dad which would be impossible to improve on Pete was a loyal and proud Stokie through and through who one of my first memories of was coming over to our house to sell us Stoke City lottery tickets My fondest memories are around the Macari era when it used to be a few pints of Pedigree in the Gardeners before making our way to our spot on the Boothen together with the away days from that time when it wasn't "are we going " but "what time are we going?"
Mate - he was proud of you and loved following you when you played cricket much the same as he did for Phil with his goalkeeping
Loving husband Proud dad Devoted grandad 100% Stokie
You are 100% right Bunny, football is important. The times I spent following Stoke with my Dad and now with my son are the most precious of times. When my Dad died just after the Cup Final I got strength from all those times we spent together, as I am sure you will.
My thoughts and best wishes are with you and your family.

Sincere condolences Bunny. I lost my dad last month and it's one of the hardest things you ever have to deal with. Your tribute is very moving. I didn't know your dad but it's plain from this and from the posts of others who knew him that he was a special man loved by his family and friends.
Bunny I have got the right Peter, tall fella grey hair Stoke through and through. He was arrested one away match and refused entry after being searched twice to get into the ground after he forgot to buy a program.
They accused him of being drunk and dissorderly which was absurd!!
My Dad went with him to court as a witness and I think it was thrown out as it should have been to begin with.
Anyway if it was the same man he was a lovely fella and always happy to talk all things Stoke. All our condolences!!
I was very sorry to read this Bunny. My sincere condolences. Nothing anyone can say will make it easier; just try to take some solace from the wealth of happy memories that you so obviously have of him. Madasasnake
